Junior High graduation is tomorrow!

Tomorrow will be the graduation ceremony for our third-graders of junior high. So, right now, they are practicing this morning and getting ready for the big event tomorrow.


Suddenly their graduation is becoming a reality to many of them. While almost all of the students will be staying with us in high school, a couple of them will be going to different schools. And several of them will be going into different courses within the school.

We are confident they will have a memorable ceremony tomorrow.

One big stage almost cleared. Next, high school!

William's Term 5 Blog

I got a influenza in the end of 2018’s January. It didn’t make me feel so bad, but it was definitely a bad time to get influenza, cause I couldn’t go to the ski trip in February first with my class.

I went to the clinic to check, they put a long thing in my nose and got some liquid in order to check my situation. Then they told me I got influenza type C and type A. I took a medicine that which is breath in with my nose, pretty fast and it worked. Although I felt better in 2.1, I still couldn’t go to ski trip, little sad.

Rebecca's Term 5 Blog!

Since we knew we will hold a singing competition in our grade,all of us were very excited.
Every class needs to sing two songs,one you need to chose one song from three. For the other one you can choose whatever you like. For my class, we chose ‘Tabitachi no Toki ’ and ‘present’ . They were all very good songs.

Then we started to practice singing. At first not so many people were active to it,especially the boys. But as the time passed,they found it was a serious problem, they started to sing with us. We began to practice very hard.

Every morning we had morning practice. All of us came to school thirty minutes before class and sing in the hall. Although we couldn’t sing very loud in the morning. But everyone tried their best. We also have singing at noon,and almost every day after school. We really sang a lot.
Singing club is also very busy at this time. We sang ‘Tabitachi no Toki ’and gave an example to all the classes. There were 11 classes in our grade,so we were so busy everyday. All of them were amazed of our singing. I hope they can improve their singing!

Finally it was the day for competition. Everyone’s heart got together and we sang by our best.But we didn’t got a prize. We were sad but we all felt cooperation and teamwork.Although we maybe had some mistakes during the singing,but it was really a wonderful competition.

Seiritsu Gakuen's 70th Graduation Ceremony

Today is the 70th Seiritsu Gakuen High school graduation ceremony. Over 360 students have worked hard over the past three years, or six years for graduates who joined in junior high, to be able to receive their high school diplomas today. This is the result of those years of toil and *the* school event of the year.

Many students will be coming to say goodbye to their seniors, friends, and clubmates as they move on to university and beyond.

There will be many smiles, and many tears, for sure.

We will also be saying "goodbye" to our third-year students, including our International students Tai, Emilie, and Meg.

But of course, it's not actually "goodbye" but "see you later".

Congratulations on your graduation, and we wish you the very best for your future!

Visa applications

If you are thinking about coming over to Japan to study at a high school, you will often need to have a visa. Many people can stay for up to 90 days on a tourist visa and attend school during that time. But if you wish to stay longer, you will usually need to get a student visa. To get the visa you normally need a certificate of eligibility.

The International Department at Seiritsu can usually help you with your application. In some cases we can submit your application for the COE (certificate of eligibility). Today, Brent was at the immigration office in Shinagawa handing in an application for one of our candidates. Our fingers are crossed that the certificate will come thru quickly.


We are always excited at this time of year. How many wonderful new students can we work with?What kind of year lies ahead?

Marathon Day

Today some of our students will be having a "marathon". Not a 26 mile full marathon, but a running event that Seiritsu Gakuen has every year. The weather couldn't be better! The sun is out, and it finally feels like winter is fading away.

Good luck to our students, hello to the sun, and see you soon, Spring!
